The water inlet valve has a built in thermistor that senses the water temp. You probably have a bad water inlet valve.

Keep in mind that some washers cycle/pulse the hot/cold water on and off when you select a warm wash, but if during a warm wash it switches to hot water only and never pulse the cold water back on then I would replace the water inlet valve.

Thank you kindly! After watching it fill on warm I see that the sensor frequenty is turning the cold water off and on again. I do wonder when its shooting out hot water if there is a potential for clothes to be damaged/shrunk?

Sounds like it's working as it should and has always worked.
Most people never notice how the washer pulse the hot/cold to get the warm water until there had been another problem.

I would not worry about it doing any damage to the cloths, it's been doing it that way sense it was new.
